Trish Regan to Dem Rep: You Resist Positive Economic News Because People Will Credit Trump
On "Your World" on Thursday, Trish Regan went head-to-head with a Democratic congressman on the Republican tax overhaul and its economic benefits to everyday Americans.
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) called the tax bill a "deficit-exploding, job-outsourcing, economic disaster" and argued that Americans are better off under Democratic tax policies.
Regan said the GOP bill gives tax relief to American citizens and companies, which equals economic growth.
She noted that many companies are offering bonuses, pay raises and other benefits to employees following the passing of the tax overhaul, and she suggested that Democrats are fighting that "good news" because it's happening under President Trump.
"I fear some members of your party do not want to see this economy succeed, because if this economy succeeds, people will credit Donald Trump with that," Regan said. "And you don't want that happening."
Sherman said America is competitive globally because we have the best workers and the best entrepreneurs, but now we're competing for who can "give the most money to the top one percent."
"You want to stifle that work ethic by taxing people more and more and more to cover your sudden and recent concerns about debt," Regan fired back.
Watch the debate above.
